The last year has brought challenges for many of us, we may have experienced alienation, loneliness, family illness, loss of income and a host of other difficulties. It has also been a time of slowing down and connecting with ourselves in ways that may have escaped us in the familiar busyness of our lives. Many people have remarked how their practices of mindfulness and compassion have been a deep resource which helped them not only cope but flourish during this past year.

Though mindfulness is a simple practice it is not always easy to sustain over time. The more we understand mindfulness the easier it will be to keep our practice alive. This in turn will help us to feel our aliveness and live with greater ease.

Over the five Tuesdays in June Carmel will explore the 9 foundations upon which the sustained practice of mindfulness is built. If you would like to deepen your understanding of mindfulness and live more fully join Carmel during June drop-in.
